among latinos in two key swing states. the number of from latino voters show mr. obama leading romney 78 to 17% in nevada. and in florida, obama leads romney 61 to 31%. romney has had a problem connecting with hispanics for months, and in just the past few days, began a new push to try to win them over. joining me now is steven nuno. thank you for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> these numbers look horrible for mitt romney. you know, comments that his dad was mexican, he'd be doing better. is there hope for him in the latino voting community? >> no. but the reason he needs to switch his position on immigration is he needs to convince more moderate voters. you know, romney 2.0 is about connecting with moderate voters, and that's the majority of americans who believe there should be a pathway to citizenship and a humane approach to immigration. >> he says he wouldn't row evacuate president obama's plan that's been granting temporary visas for young, undocumented workers. is that progress enough? >> not really. there's two words that latinos should pay attention to when they're talki
nine points over mr. romney. absentee bat los -- but can the congressman and governor romney close the deal in the badger state in the imagine who scareded off against scott walker against in the gub natural torl elections, mayor barrett, thank you so much for joining me. so the president hit the 50% mark in her state. how could you compare the president -- >> well, it's rising and i think when paul ryan was first name as a presidential-vice presidential can dwat. the president was here last week, he'll be here later this week. i think they know they're not going to have a 14-point victory here. but they're hoping to please the deal pretty soon. >> is that what you attribute this surge to? >> well, i think that is certainly one of the factors, but i think another one is that the president does have a strong ground game here in wisconsin and as you can imagine, there's going to be a much larger turnout in the november election than in any of the previously election. that always brings a lot of students out. but they're working very, very hard here, the obama campaign has got a very,
by just two points, 48 to 46 for mr. romney. could the spreading benghazi gate scandal slow the president's momentum? let's ask former governor charlie crist of the crucial battleground state of florida. governor crist it in tampa. mario diaz was in miami. governor crist, my mom says hi. still remembers you fondly when you dropped by her 85th birthday. i have to say governor rick scott is sending her love letters. i don't know, man. out of sight, out of mind. you got to get back into the game. >> your mother is a great lady and i was honored to be at her birthday and i want to thank you publicly for come doing carol and my wedding about four years ago. it was nice to have is you in st. peter's. thank you for the invitation. >> geraldo: you are great couple and i appreciated being with us. what about benghazi gate? does it have legs in florida? >> i don't think we know yet. i really don't. until you get answers to some of the questions i have seen you pose o on the segment befoe i don't think you can answer that question whether it will have an impact or not. people are concerned about thi
is it that mr. romney proposes doing? that's what's -- >> the question to you, general, with all respect. >> that's okay. >> what's the president of the united states doing? romney wants to be president but the president is the president. >> president's working with allies in the region to try to provide hue human taryn assistance. working with groups to try to form a legitimate and recommendsed political opposition. working to -- with others to try to hold down the delivery of heavy weapons to the region. working with other allies that are providing some assistance and some information on who the syrian resistance leaders are so it's humanitarian, political, diplomatic. it's everything we can do short of using military force. i'm sure the military options have been looked at. an air campaign has been looked at. taking out the ground defense. both of those are major military operations. they involve war. they don't have -- they don't have strong support from nato allies. it's more go it alone for the united states. >> all right. >> an they don't seem to be that effective in addressing th
that now, five weeks from the day. with the debate tomorrow mr. romney is hoping to put this into the context of sort of a comprehensive approach gliding into election day, or rather charge into it. his aides yesterday said his first debate is a big opportunity for him to introduce himself to the country. they realize there are three more presidential debates and a vice presidental debate in this final one-month period w. that said there are a whole series of criticisms that mitt romney has been honing against the president for weeks an sampled a little bit of it last night for a denver audience upon arrival in the city to a crowd of 5500. >> we know where the president's pathway lead, because we are on it. we've seen it for four years. we've seen the number of people on food stamps go from 32 million to 47 million. 15million more people having fallen into poverty and needing food stamps. one out of six americans now in poverty. 23million americans looking nor a job. >> reporter: so in addition to facts like that which mr. romney will roll out in tomorrow night's debate
is different from the people who live here for years. if obama could ask a question to mr. romney, how come he pays less taxes. he pays less taxes than president obama. how come? it is important for people to remember state funds are liquidated because -- i know many people who collect unemployment. i know a lot of people that are on disability and they do not deserve it either. they are disabled because -- i think it will experiment with that. secondly, the americans always when they are out of work, -- host: a couple of other stories. he goes on to talk about the relationship between the two. that is by thomas o'neill iii. he is talking about how the two were able to get things going. from "the washington post." that comes from "the washington post." mike is a republican caller. he is wing and on whether or not the real -- the american dream has been downsized. caller: i think it is an interesting conversation especially on the heels of the last two callers saying they felt the american dream was defined on anyone coming here to make it. he have to define what the american dream and tails. a
the president. 46% of undecided voters in a cbs poll gave the win to romney to just 22% for mr. obama. nearly a third of the undecideds were undecided. romney's positive rating rose above 50% for the first time in this campaign in a reuters poll. the president's ratings stayed unchanged at 56%. romney stayed on the attack even though his positions were to be charitable and flatly untrue. here's some of what he said about his tax plan and the economy. >> romney: i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class but i'm not going to reduce the share of taxes paid by high income people. we have 23 million people out of work. or stop look for work in this country. >> eliot: here's how the obama campaign responded to some of the claims. with an ad released this afternoon that relied on fact checkers. >> mitt romney has not laid out specifics for how he would pay for his tax cut. he says
ongoing, perhaps when mr. romney becomes our next president, we are hoping that whoever gets the office, we have the worst civil rights violation in mississippi and the correction in the local and state government in mississippi. lives are being hurt. children are being kidnapped. i was very motivated to your mitt romney talk about the first amendment. >> we will get a couple more calls. back to our twitter stream. -- her ee is one this one says -- ours go to a caller on democrat line. go ahead. caller: i am a registered democrat. i am on a fixed income. i worry about our medicare and social security. people are on fixed incomes and depend on social security and medicare. i will vote for mitt romney. i feel that he is the one to straighten out this country and the mess that it is in. i voted for a bomb at of years ago and i am very disappointed in him -- obama four years ago and i am very disappointed in him. >> what made you decide to vote for mitt romney? >> i think he is the only one who could really get us out of this position that we are in. it can go on like this. i am against oba
. >> mr. president? >> first of all, i think governor romney is going to have a first day. because he's also going to repeal obama care which will not be very popular with democrats as you're sitting down with them. but, look, my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican as long as they're advancing the cause of making middle class families stronger and giving ladders of opportunity to the middle class. that's how we cut taxes from middle class families and small businesses. that's how we cut a trillion dollars of spenting that wasn't advancing that cause. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our exports and sell more american products around the world. that's how we repeal don't ask, don't tell. that's how we ended the war in iraq and that's how we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. that's how we went after al qaeda and bin laden. so we've seen progress even under republican control of the house of representatives. but ultimately part of being principled, part of being a leader is being able to descr
, or reagan, did they do as bad a performance as president obama did? >> mr. gibbs portrayed romney as a chameleon, who takes on different positions when he goes into the debate. has any other challenger thrown that type of a curve ball? >> well, they used to call franklin roosevelt a chameleon, because he would change colors, his other name was the juggler, so politics, that name is pretty common. but barack obama doesn't buy into that style. he tries to always be kind of the ernest candidate. and mitt romney is a candidate of convenience. so it is an unusual pairing of these two. the president is going to have to call the chameleon out, if you like, in the next debate. >> so you gave us an example of a couple of first-time debates. can you suggest that history will judge this debate in total with the other ones? i mean, we talk about things that are bad with the first one, that is usually the things that stand out the most, but more about that? >> i teach presidential studies for a living and i get confused. we tend to group all of the debates together. and at best we have an impr
really isn't about mr. giuliani. i raise the issue because mr. giuliani, romney, most republicans draw a sharp line between the private sector and the vicious and predatory public sector while at the same time advocating for $2 trillion more in defense spending. they also overseen the creation of a vast, largely privately contracted world of surveillance and security that provides a whole lot of private sector jobs and healthy paychecks from the taxpayer dime. we shouldn't pretend that the public and private sector exist in two different worlds. the overlap is increasing and there's a good lot of private profit to be made by navigating the borders between the two. i can appreciate mr. giuliani was taken aback that i broached this when the topic at hand was the debate. i would love to have the former mayer to accept our invitation to explore the issue further and in depth. i want to find out what my guests know now that they didn't know when the week began. alexis grold steen. >> they are putting their bodies between bulldozers and clear cuts to prevent the southern part of the construc
. >> chris: and we saw that throughout the debate. and mr. obama kept looking down, while romney was making points, or criticizing him or attacking him. but, i have to think that is debate 101, that you would tell your candidate, always assume you you are on camera and that, you know, looking at you, even if the other guy is speaking? >> you know, it is funny, though, chris, debate history, presidential debate history is replete with examples of where candidates don't pay attention to how they look, and how they say things, and are only worried about what they say. but, audiences tell us that they take as much as 65% of their meaning from how candidates -- how people say things. you know, so you have the famous george bush looking at his watch, or al gore, sighing in the debate, and this time around, we have the president, who seems to be disinterested. who seems to be irritated and not focused on the debate. >> chris: what do you tell a candidate to do when the other guy is speaking? or even attacking? >> well, you know, certainly, you can take notes, you can look out at the audience but e
that sentiment. here was mrs. obama's response. >> ann romney recently said about the critics of her husband -- to her husband's critics that running for president is hard. do you sympathize with that? >> you know, the campaign experience is unique for everyone. everyone comes to this and experiences it differently. for me i really enjoy campaigning. i think barack and i we both get energy from it because when you live in washington, sometimes you get isolated from the rest of the country. and this is a time when we get out and we can remember just how decent people are. i come across people i don't care what political party they come from, they are hopeful. they're happy to see you. they're willing to listen. and it's good to be reminded of that. when you get out on the campaign trail. so i get energy from it. and i always have. and i've always said that. it's, you know, i never thought, you know a few years ago that i would enjoy it this much. but i really do. and i've had this -- then i can hang out with my brother. he's a pretty good asset too out there. >> reporter: wolf, mrs. obama was
